Description:

This stimulating little chapbook would work very well as a basis for classroom debate on speculative fiction, history, or the notion of free will." - Publishers Weekly "The foremost writer of literary utopias.' - Time magazine "Its no coincidence that one of our most visionary science fiction writers is also a profoundly good nature writer.' - Los Angeles Times "The best nature writer in the U.S. today also happens to write science fiction.' - The Ends of the Earth Combining dazzling speculation with a profoundly humanist vision, this astounding alternate history tale presents a dramatic encounter with destiny wrapped around a simple yet provocative premise: the terrifying question of what might have happened if the fateful flight over Hiroshima had gone a bit differently. An extensive interview with the author, offering insight into his fiction and philosophies, is also included.
